  • Actually, after recently watching ...Lost 5'5" x 19 1/4" Redux I'm sold on the Lost RNF. There's a ton of footage of the board in everything from knee high onshore mush to thumping overhead barrels. I gotta try and scrounge up a used one somewhere to try out, it looks like a really fun all around board.

    Search on Youtube for Lost 5'5" x 19 1/4" Redux and you will find a ton of clips.

    I agree rnfs are great boards but there is a huge difference between what a pro can ride in any conditions and what an average surfer can.

  • My dual keel mini simmons I've ridden in [email protected] and [email protected] 12 s . Does it surf the bigger stuff as well as a thruster ..... No , can it work , yes I've paddled out in fast barreling waves as well as big slopey walls and everything in between on it last 18 months or so . I had and now have a different variation Simster more pulled in Multi finned version and this one is much more shortboardy . Still won't draw a traditional thruster line  but I've done airs , floaters , barrels , etc on it .

  • Gees, if you truly only want to have a 1-board quiver, I would have to say the longboard is indespensible for the simple fact that it will get you in the water and surfing more than any other shape. Hope I don't come off as a surf snob, but for the year round surfer, I think a 3 board quiver is the minimum. Longboard, fish/egg/pod/biscuit/etc. shape for mid range (waist high to a little overhead), and a step up for anything bigger and really cold weather months.

  • I have an instant aversion to a person who claims only to listen to jazz.
    Really just jazz uh?

    You look dumb nose riding a shortboard and look equally as dumb riding a longboard from the tail..

    You asked, just my 2 cents.
    ..Whore it to death then sell the corpse on Craigslist... (used to be Ebay but eff Ebay and Paypal)

  • Went the last couple years with a one board quiver. 6-1 quad. Obviously not ideal in all conditions but has enough float for summer junk and enough hold for winter juice. I love the idea of the one board quiver. And never waste time deciding what board to ride or complaining that I wish I rode my...!
    I just bought a board for my daughter...another 6-1 so now I steal that. Only decision is which 6-1 do I ride!  If I had the money I would buy a nice little fish for the summer. With four kids though, I will probably be buying a board for one of them not myself.

  • i did a major thinning of the board rack this year:  ended up wit two boards , a Wynn 5 fin Bonzer egg with 101 bamboo  fins and a longboard, Walden Magic model---the egg is 8' and the longboard is 9'6"   but, then i am over 60 and "large boned"  i really think anyone who surfs NJ really needs at least two boards.......I also have a 9' performance long board by scott Busby stashed down in the family house in hatteras ,  it's a vacuum bagged EPS/ epoxy board which kills the hatteras waves for me.       thats my story and i'm stickin' to it  ;-)

    I need to do that. Have 8 boards and realize that over the past year ride at most ride 2-3 except really big or warm travel... But I guess that's what I have then for?

    How about fish longboard handplane?
    can you here me now...good

    i'm right with you.  Pretty much have been going with the small wave fishy groveler thing for messing around, typical 6-2 to 6-4 shortboard all-rounder pulled in enough to handle a little juice, longboard, and a good set of fins.
     
    I probably could get by with just fins, shortboard and longboard (going with longboard on small days).
